TGCA Uganda Teachers Conference Under Way

We have a team of teachers from the Capital District Region (Albany) lead by Ann Fantauzzi in a 2-day conference in Uganda.  Mark Bertrand will be joining them on the 2nd day as he heads out tomorrow. TGC has partnered with a team of Master Teachers from the Greater Capital Regional Teachers Center!


A very happy little girl!

Our last update the little girl who was sleeping on her mattress on a cold concrete floor –> who dreamed of a real bed of her own, a aloft bed.

We were contacted by an old, very kind friend working for Catholic Charities Albany telling us of a poor family she is helping who had moved into Saratoga County. Samantha Marie got together friends to paint the walls and install new flooring but still lacked the funds to make this little girls dream of this special bed come true.

The Giving Circle does what we do: we stepped in where we saw we could make a difference and make a dream come true. The bed is installed and all her new princess bedding in place.

The little princess stood atop of her dream bed and declared “I’m the queen of the world“!

ANY and ALL things we do, we do because of all of you who help support the work we do.

From building schools, clinics, wells, sanitation, farms and more than ½  way around the world to repairing, remodeling and fitting out homes here in in Saratoga county for poor families and families with disabled children to simply provide a bed and special bedding to bring a poor little girl happiness and hope to her and her family. The Giving Circle and all we do the lives we change for the better is because of your support!

Every child deserves a bed, everyone deserves hope and happiness, the knowledge people care about them.

She is now “The queen of the world”!

Thank you Samantha Marie for all your good work and contacting TGC.



Happy New Year!

The Giving Circle Africa’s Mission: Pledged to shape better lives by building and teaching sustainable solutions in education, health, farming, and economic self-empowerment to end poverty and hopelessness.

A little girl is very happy!

Every Child deserves a bed to sleep in and not to sleep on the floor.

We were contacted by an old very kind friend working for Catholic Charities telling us of a poor family she is helping.
Their little girl is sleeping on the floor and has dreamed of having Loft bed.

As as soon as its delivered this coming week, there will be one more happy little girl whose dream of a loft bed of her own will be a reality . Our friend at Catholic Charities just let us know that she told the young girl of the gift coming, and, she “burst into tears, she is on absolute cloud 9!!”

This thanks to The Giving Circle and all of you who make what we do a reality.

More Joy….

This is what The Giving Circle is,an ever expanding circle of Compassion. When we are called out to someone, a family in need all our members step up and what is even more heart warming is people, non Giving Circle members who hear about the job to help some never even hearing of The Giving Circle.
